We bought a bag of crap

Thrifty people that we are, the Mr subscribes to a variety of deal making websites. One of his favorites is Woot. If you're not familiar with Woot, it sells one item a day for a discounted price, until it sells out. We've seen everything from laptops to aqua scooters. But the piece de resistance is the elusive bag of crap, available only when there is a woot off. The bag of crap is the holy grail for bargain hunters. One "bag" for $1, plus $5 shipping could result in a variety of overstocked goodness. The BOC can contain any of the previously featured products and runs quite the gamut. There are entire websites dedicated to "logging in" your crap.

Maybe we'll get one of these

Or some of these:
Vicks Junior Thermometer $8.00

The hubs is hoping for this

But I'm thinking it will have one of these

Lowepro camera bag $10.00

This isn't his first BOC though, he lucked up the day after Thanksgiving during a 24 hour woot off. He waited like a small child watching for Santa, it was cute. He had an unwrapping (people post the opening of their boxes on youtube. seriously. do a search.) complete with play by play. But alas, there was no big ticket item, just a 12 pack of Southpark key chains, 2 GoDusters, a stocking and a Christmas spinner. His heart was broken :(

Let's just hope this time is better. I'll let you know when it arrives!

I'll upload video of me reading your post when you reveal the crap on youtube, complete with play by play.

Seriously; now everyone wants to know.

(I need a camera case. What do you like about that camera case?)
